About the property

Pleasant and well equipped four-bedroom vacation rental, huge veranda, sundeck

Perched on a hillside overlooking the channel, this three-story, four-bedroom charmer is privately owned and operated.

It is surrounded by a large garden with lush vegetation, sundeck, and open-air shower. Sorry, no pool.

Perfect for families, the airy, well lit and pleasant vacation rental provides plenty of sleeping space for ten people. It boasts a framework of Brazilian hardwood jatoba, glazed openings, microcement floors, and bathrooms finished with exquisite glass mosaic tiles.

Upper floor: one suite w/ queen-size bed, French doors and veranda; one suite with two twin-size beds and two rollaway beds (sleeps four), and one half bathroom.

Lower floor, with (covered) external access: one suite w / queen-size bed and one suite with two twin-size beds.

Intermediate floor: Living room with dinner area. Large veranda furnished with couch, benches, hammocks, dining table for ten people, counter with sink, large portable charcoal grill. Fully-equipped kitchen (except for dishwasher) with gas stove, pantry with freezer and mini-bar (for beverages). Laundry area with sink, washer and dryer, staff bathroom. We do not have a room for live-in maid.

The living room is equipped with loud-speakers w/ MP3 connection, 32-in Led TV with Sky satellite, DVD / Bluray for video games and movies.

Ceiling fans in bedrooms and living room. Gas heaters installed outside the house provide hot water for all bathrooms and kitchen. Water supply is not affected by summer shortage, as the community has its own well.

A path within the premises leads down to a private area right on the waterfront, with small beach (at low tide) and ramp for small and medium-size boats.

Adoramos a casa, é um verdadeiro paraiso .... se avista o mar de todos os lados. Otima churrasqueira, otimos quartos, otimos banheiros. Pessoal do condominio muito atencioso. Tinhamos tudo na cozinha .... taças de todos os tipos. A proprietaria é uma pessoa muito especial, preocupou-se com todos os detalhes para que não nos faltasse nada ..... em breve estaremos de volta !!!

Owner's Response: Agradeço os elogios e também as mudas de plantas que sua mãe muito gentil e generosamente acrescentou ao jardim. Já resolvi o caso da geladeira, obrigada por avisar. Feliz 2016!

Só temos elogios para essa casa. Sua imensa varanda debruçada no jardim dá a sensação de que estamos vivendo isolados no meio da natureza. A proximidade e a vista do mar completam esse cenário de paz e tranquilidade. Tudo isso ao lado de duas excelentes praias num ponto excelente da Ilhabela. Os quartos e banheiros da casa são amplos e muito confortáveis. Acordar e ficar olhando o mar ainda antes de sair da cama não tem nada igual. Para completar a proprietária é de uma delicadeza total. (na verdade eu não devia contar isso prá ninguém, mas devo ser justo e sincero, então...)

Owner's Response: Muito obrigada por seus comentários, Luiz. É sempre um grande prazer ter inquilinos como vocês, que tratam a propriedade como se fosse sua. Estou até pensando em criar um cartão fidelidade! :-)

Que capricho!

  • 5 of 5

Casa sensacional! Ampla, bem localizada e muito bem conservada! Recomendo, mas gostei tanto da casa que tenho receio de ser mal-cuidada por novos inquilinos. Estes devem ter consciencia de que os proprietários sao muito caprichosos e cuidadosos com a casa. Pontos a serem considerados: 1-nao existem (ainda) ar condicionado, mas a casa é bem arejada; 2- Nao ha piscina, mas existe pequeno portinho exclusivo do condominio que é muito bom para um banho de mar.

Access Ilhabela: ferry from São Sebastião runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Reservations are recommended on weekends, holidays and high summer.

Access to property: by paved roads, approximately 7km (4 1/2 mi) north of the town of Ilhabela and 14km (9 mi) from the ferry terminal. No car needed for transportation, local city buses run from 6AM to as late as 1AM. The closest bus stop is across the street from the gated community entrance.

Ponta das Canas is an area in the northern edge of the Ilhabela island, overlooking the São Sebastião Channel. It is a very quiet and restful place, great for reading and relaxing away from the town hustle, even in times of greatest visitor influx. The local native wildlife includes lizards, armadillos, toucans, marine birds and countless bird species.

The closest commerce is limited to a small supermarket and a few taverns along the shores at Pinto and Armação beaches, approximately 1/2 mile away.

Ilhabela is home to a number of fine restaurants, shops, art galleries, and outdoor activities such as sailing, fishing, hiking and water sports.

Property available for rental from 21 December 2012, on a first come, first serve basis.
